What did I read during the last week?
Rogue Protocol by Martha Wells: It’s the return of Murderbot! My review is here.
Fatal Throne (by a whole list of authors): My review of this YA take on the Tudors is here.
Competence (The Custard Protocol, #3) by Gail Carriger: I just adored the audiobook! My thoughts are here.
And a late addition — just finished over the weekend:
You Me Everything by Catherine Isaac: Sweet, heart-centered contemporary fiction. My review is here.
Pop culture goodness:
I watched the Netlix movie version of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before — adorable! Question for all my bookish friends: Since I enjoyed the movie, should I read the book?
I bought a business-y book. Can you believe it? I’ve made a vague commitment to a few folks at work to read this… but I have a hard time using my precious reading moments for non-pleasure reading.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Girl in the Green Silk Gown by Seanan McGuire: It’s Seanan McGuire! Of course I’m going to read this book!
Now playing via audiobook:
Back to Tamora Pierce and Tortall! I’m starting The Immortals series, which begins with Wild Magic. I’m not loving the full-cast recording so far (those rarely work for me), but I’m sticking with it to see if the story itself grabs me.
Book group reads:
- Classic read: My book group’s current classic read is Middlemarch by George Eliot. We’re reading and discussing two chapters per week. Slow but steady!
- The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon. Continuing our group read of the Lord John works, it’s lovely to revisit The Scottish Prisoner, which stars Lord John Grey and everyone’s favorite Scottish laird, Jamie Fraser. Want to join in? Ask me how!
So many books, so little time…
